How to open the MeroShare Account?
To open a new MeroShare account, you need to go through the following important steps:
- First and foremost, you need to have created a Demat account. A Demat account is simply an account that is created to retain or hold stocks in digital form. In the old days, stock purchase certificates were provided to the owners, and the stocks were transferred through paper works. However, you can hold all your stocks digitally without losing any paper documents with a Demat account. To open a Demat account, you need to visit your nearest bank, broker, or capital who are authorized to provide that service. Moreover, the Demat Account opening is facilitated by banks and financial institutions and created by stock capital companies.
It is easier to contact those banks where you already have your bank account. To open a Demat account, you may need to submit a copy of your citizenship certificate, Passport size photo, Bank account details, Documents of identification, and information about your family genealogy of up to three generations.
In typical cases, the Demat Account is opened in 3 to 4 days depending upon the scene. However, some capitals may provide you with a Demat Account the very next day you proceed with your request. However, you must not create multiple Demat accounts as it is strictly regulated and forbidden by Nepal Rastra Bank, the central monetary authority of Nepal. A Demat account contains your DP id and BO id, referred to as the Depository Participant id and Beneficiary Owner id which is unique to individual clients.
- After your Demat Account is ready, you need to apply for the C-ASBA registration Number, also known as the CRN number. This should be made in the same capital or bank where you have created a Demat Account. They will process your form request and provide you with the CRN number after a day or two. You need a CRN number while applying for IPO issues using Mero Share.
